Does High Blood Pressure Affect Childbirth?
I want to ask whether high blood pressure in pregnant women can result in cesarean delivery, right?
Hello Mrs. Beautiful Permatasari thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Basically it is not high blood pressure that causes a pregnant woman in SC surgery to give birth. But prevention from complications that may occur due to the presence of high blood pressure. High blood pressure that occurs during pregnancy can also be called gestational hypertension / pregnancy hypertension.
According to medical science, hypertension in pregnancy will cause risks such as:
growth disorder in the fetus
placental abruption is separated from the uterine wall before labor occurs
the baby died in the womb
pregnancy poisoning / eclampsia
For this reason, it is better if a pregnant woman has been detected to have high blood pressure during pregnancy, so that medical treatment needs to be done properly so that the possible risks that occur in the future can be avoided. We recommend that you consult with your obstetrician regularly in order to get appropriate treatment, usually the doctor will give blood pressure-lowering drugs which must have been clinically tested for the safety of the fetus. If it is scheduled for SC / Sectio Caesaria surgery, this will be done to prevent fertilization if forced to do normal labor, so as to avoid the risks that endanger the pregnant woman and her baby. We advise you to continue to carry out a healthy lifestyle while you are pregnant, by consuming nutritious foods (vegetables, fruits, low-fat milk, lean meat) and avoid foods that contain high sodium such as salt foods, besides doing light exercise in a manner routine, avoid exposure to cigarette smoke, and manage stressors properly so that blood pressure does not easily rise. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
